  • Apple is Looking to Hire a Person to Help Create "Original Content and Live Projects"

    According to a recently posted job listing, the Cupertino California company is looking to hire a person to help create “original content and live projects” for several of its online services. This includes Apple Music, iTunes, iBooks and the App Store. The candidates for the position are expected to come from “a senior level entertainment and media background,” and have experience and skills in areas such as events, project management and marketing.

    Based on the listing, the goal is to "devise, develop and project manage a diverse and multi-faceted original content and live projects program for Apple Music, iTunes and the App Store," though the company hasn’t revealed further information regarding the topic. As far as potential content types, the company does list music, radio, books and TV/movies as examples with experience in artist relations and talent booking considered an “essential.” The Cupertino California company is also hoping to find someone that is familiar with “broadcast production teams and third party creative and production partners.”

    Speculation points toward Apple potentially organizing more press events, Beats 1 guests, the Apple Music Festival and/or in-store appearances. It’s unclear what the company could potentially be working on as Apple’s senior VP for Internet Software and Services, Eddy Cue, said the following regarding questions about original content in a recent interview:

    We love working with our partners. We're great at technology, and they're great at creating content, and we think that's a great partnership to have.
    We will have to wait to see who takes the spot and what they end up doing for the tech giant.
